Another great YA paranormal book that is coming this summer is Leilani by LM DeWalt, the third in the Quest for Reason series. Check it out when it launches this summer!
For Lily, forever does not seem to be as long as it implies. Having finally found the love she longed for and settling in Lima, Peru, she again finds herself suddenly alone. Everyone she cares about is disappearing one by one and she can do nothing to stop it. Even her new son, who is on the brink of death, is taken from the hospital.
Someone or thing is behind the disappearances and Lily vows to stop at nothing to get everyone back safely, though in this world of vampires and witches, not everyone seems to be what they appear.
Close up of The Rape of Proserpina by Bernini
Every once in a while I find a passage that deeply affects me. In working on our new book, Persephone’s Orchard by Molly Ringle, I happened upon this dark poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay.
Be to her, Persephone,
All the things I might not be;
Take her head upon your knee.
She that was so proud and wild,
Flippant, arrogant and free,
She that had no need of me,
Is a little lonely child
Lost in Hell,—Persephone,
Take her head upon your knee;
Say to her, “My dear, my dear,
It is not so dreadful here.
I was recently asked if poetry written by women was regarded as being whiny or irritating. Anyone reading this poem would agree that it is neither and the depth and beauty rivals any poem written – by woman or man.

We have a few projects in the pipeline, and one of them is Persephone’s Orchard by Molly Ringle. It’s a new telling of an old myth and we’re happy to release the cover here. Check it out when it releases in June 2013.
The Greek gods never actually existed. Did they? Sophie Darrow finds she was wrong about that assumption when she’s pulled into the spirit realm, complete with an Underworld, on her very first day at college. Adrian, the mysterious young man who brought her there, simply wants her to taste a pomegranate. And soon, though she returns to her regular life, her mind begins exploding with dreams and memories of ancient times–of a love between two Greeks named Persephone and Hades. But lethal danger has always surrounded the immortals, and now that she’s tainted with the Underworld’s magic, that danger is drawing closer to Sophie.
